Under the lease terms, the bank will have a 3,949-sf ground-floor presence and 12,398 sf of office space for its energy group on the 16th floor.

Nine floors are left to be completed as Crescent edges closer to an early 2002 topping out.

The office complex is close to Enron Field and home to Park Shops, Four Seasons Hotel, Four Seasons Apartments, Houston Center Club.
